  1. Jaydub i don't. I only remember i got them at Bob Marriott's about 10 years ago because one of my kids saw them n liked them.
  2. O guys look i found my hackle nabbers. I don't know if they still make them but they work great for delicate soft hackles.
  3. Those hackle pliers work great for their intended use. I also use those for twisting dubbing loops, they are easy to spin.
  4. These are my swiss hackle pliers.
  5. Hi guys! I've used many hackle pliers n the one's that work best for me are called swiss hackle pliers. They're inexpensive n hold dry fly hackles soft hackles biots n stems w no slipping. I've had mine for over 10 yrs. Those c and f are nice but too expensive for me.
  6. A spider Hook U series 105 size #12 Thread body Danville 6/0 waxed in orange Rib Silver wire utc ex small Hackle hen cape died black. This pattern works great here in southern California for the stocker rainbows.
  7. What do you call that spider pattern? I would fish it!
  8. It might help! Tightlinevideos on youtube has a short video on how to place the herl on right were the fibers stick strait out when you wrap it on the hook shank. It helped me out a lot n my flies look more uniform. That one looks great for a size 20.
  9. I'm fishing pan fish here in southern California 7 out of the 10 flies are nymphs or wets the other 3 out of 10 are dries. The nymphs get picked up a lot more.
  10. Black olive n amber mainly for stone flies. I prefer goose for stone flies n turkey for bodies, takes a little extra time to learn how to use them correctly.
  11. Yes everyday a minimum of 25 flies. I then take a car ride to the lake and as i do my cardio (walk) ( minimum of 8 miles) i offer my flies to fishermen. The hobby pays for it self!
  12. I mainly use a 9w with heavy clausers in white. I fish los angeles county n orange county here in California. Keep it simple.
  13. Joined the local 300 laborers in 1990 for 1 year. Started working for private investigators full time for about 20 years n then went part time and became a part-time realtor here in the Los Angeles area. Lets see what's next!
